Coinbase has announced that its Visa debit card will now have support for more digital assets and in more countries. According to the exchange firm, five new assets will be added and the card’s reach will also be widened to ten new countries, making a total of 29.
Before now, the Coinbase Visa Card only included support for Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Litecoin (LTC). Now, the following assets have been added including Basic Attention Token (BAT), Stellar (XLM), XRP, 0x (ZRX), and Augur (REP).
The exchange further announced that the new jurisdictions to be supported are Romania, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Iceland, Hungary, Denmark, Liechtenstein, Croatia, and Bulgaria.
Coinbase launched the Visa card back in April this year. Originally launched in the United Kingdom, the card allows Coinbase users to transact business and make payments for goods and services whether bought online or in a physical store. The card will deduct funds from the crypto wallets of customers, facilitating these purchases. Customers will also be able to withdraw money from ATMs using the cards and for fiat transactions, Coinbase will charge a fee.
The company also launched a Coinbase Card app along with the card to allow customers to manage their accounts better. Available on both the iOS and Android, the app allows customers to easily fund their accounts and also shows transactions, with access to receipts as well.
